I'll take a quick guess...
There wouldn't be enough mass to create enough gravity to hold an atmosphere, so the Earth would be without atmosphere like the moon. Without the atmosphere's heat insulation effect as well as filtering protection from the sun, the Earth would be well below survivable temperatures on the dark side, and well above on the Sun-ward side.
There would be no geomagnetic field, which is created by friction in the Earth's core, so the Earth would be bombarded with lethal radiation from the Sun.
There would be no volcanism, and hence no nutrient rich soils on the Earth's surface, so there could be no plant life, even if there was an atmosphere.
